Hans-Christoph Steiner is a researcher and hacker with Guardian Project. He works to make private-by-design easy for all to achieve. For the past 15 years, he worked to make software as private as possible yet usable by everyone, as well as building ethical distribution systems that are resilient to unjust censorship.  This work is available as apps, free open-source software libraries, blog posts, and custom mobile devices. 

Before that, he worked for a decade as a media artist designing digital interactions focused on human perceptual capabilities. With an emphasis on collaboration, he works in many forms, including free software for mobile and embedded devices, responsive sound environments, free wireless networks that build community, musical robots that listen, programming environments to let you play with math, and a jet-powered fish that you can ride.
